It has been a rough month for my little ones.
Sometimes we never know what causes them to get ill. Especially since mine are both indoors. No sliding glass door. No contact with other animals or people. We didn’t even touch another animal, yet they still got sick.
The ironic part, neither was sick because of the other.
Started with Lucy having loose bowel movements. Several days, and still no change. Soon graduated into her meowing and standing on the bed. Her usual MO for a no-no. Band her from the rooms with beds… after cleaning up several messes. Two plus weeks we had bedroom doors closed.
Lucy either did it on the bed or in the litter box. There could have been a third alternative. I’ll take my wins where I can.
To find out how to keep your cats content. Take time to observe their behavior.
It isn’t just keeping their bellies full. Ah yes, they will be happier if they are not hungry. But with too much consumption of food they will become listless. And health issues could be a problem.
The cat’s natural instinct is to climb. And observe from a safe place. Another typical behavior is to get low and hide, which represents fear.
The cat’s small stature on the floor is an inadequate perspective of their environment. Providing high places invigorates their spirit for adventure.
National Health Month for your Cat
Before the spring arrives, is a great opportunity to turn attention to our four-legged family members.
Has your pet slowed down? Remember the age equivalent. (link here) As each year ticks by, our cats will become less energetic. Toys, once entertained, are off the radar.
Cats Love Technology
Watch a cat video with cat audio and they want to check on the intruder. Or who might be their new friend? Depends on if they love other cats or not. Our cat Andy loved cats, but not people.
